Making the right strategic decisions belongs to the most difficult tasks at the chessboard. But how can you enhance your strategic understanding and methodical play?
In Kasimdzhanov: Strategy Step by Step, Grandmaster Rustam Kasimdzhanov has carefully selected games from his own practice which are dominated by positional and strategic considerations, clarifying in extensive annotations the ideas and thoughts that the decisions of the grandmasters are based upon.
He shows how the game plan is made in the first moves of the Opening and then - in the ideal case - purposefully continued step by step in the Middlegame. At the end of this entertaining, practical and relevant course, you will be familiar with many positional elements such as:
- open lines
- strong and weak squares
- pawn chains
- isolated pawns
- space advantage
- pawn majorities
- hanging pawns etc. making you ready to use them for your own play.
